I had been thinking about making a unicycle hub. I think the easiest (and it's not easy) way would be to take a steel BMX hub (BMX, because it has larger axle diameters), immobilize the bearings (e.g. weld them in place), somehow attach bearings on the axle (hold them in place by e.g. nuts or machined bearing holders) and then attach cottered cranks to the axle.
But that is so much work, I don't think it's worth it...
